Nigeria, 15 Nations Begin Joint Military Operation In Gulf Of Guinea by GIdiata(m): 1:29am On Oct 08, 2020
The Nigerian Navy on Wednesday deployed six warships and 65 gunboats in a joint multinational maritime exercise comprising 16 foreign Navies from Europe, America and Africa.

The participating countries are the U.S., France, Italy, Brazil and Gulf of Guinea countries, including Angola, Benin, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Others are Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Republic of Congo and Sao Tome and Principe.

Rear Adm. Perry Onwuzulike, the Fleet Commander, Eastern Naval Command, Nigerian Navy, flagged-off the four-day exercise tagged: ‘Exercise Grand Africa Nemo 2020’ in Onne, Rivers.

Onwuzulike said the exercise was aimed at developing the capacity of the various navies for maritime security operations within the Gulf of Guinea countries.

“Exercise Grand Africa Nemo 2020 is a yearly ritual that is organised by the French Government in collaboration with the United States and European Union, among others.

“The objective of the exercise is for capacity development toward maritime interdiction operations and security operations in the area.

“The exercise is a continuous exercise toward securing the nation’s territorial waters and the Gulf of Guinea,” he said.

He noted that Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) Okpabana, NNS Thunder, NNS Andoni, NNS Gongola, NNS Shiroro and NNS Kyanwa would take part in the exercise alongside other foreign naval fleets.

According to Onwuzulike, the exercise would also be used to train troops on the use of the nation’s maritime domain awareness infrastructure for surveillance and threat assessment.

“It will also be used to train our men and ships on the conduct of vessel boarding, search and seizure as well as how to handle evidence exhibits after arrest.

“The whole idea is to develop capacity and training within the Gulf of Guinea in line with the protocols of the Yaoundé Code of Conduct,” he added.
